technoclave
about us


technoclave.org is the brainchild of one Jeff Phipps, a.k.a. exile. The domain name came about after he realised that when it really came down to it, businesses kept their technical people 'locked' away in the backroom with the servers, etc. Over time, this seperation became an actual technological demarcation: within the server room, the personnel and the environment was inherently more technical than without. A Technological Enclave: a technoclave.

Eventually, technoclave.org is to become the webroot of an Information Technology consulting firm, but currently it is the receptcle of one of exile's other all-consuming hobbies, role-playing games. Hosted on this site are the profiles and in-character websites for over half-a-dozen RPG characters. Some are his, while others are hosted for gaming-colleagues of his. The web-code, however, is a portfolio of Mr. Phipps' HTML work, all of it having been done by hand (using Notepad, pico or jEdit), rather than some fancy-schmancy development studio. Mr. Phipps has used said studios, and doesn't terribly like them because the code is UGLY, while hand-made is clean, neat and W3C Standards Compliant (a big plus in his book).

Mr. Phipps holds a Bachelors of Business Administration with a concentration in Management of Information Systems from the R.O. Anderson Schools of Business at the University of New Mexico, a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certificate, plus CompTIA A+ and Network+ Certifications. He hopes to acquire a job out there in the real world in the IT field with these Certifications and Degrees. His preferences lean toward network administration or maintenance and design, but he has done help-desk/on-site tech-support and systems administration as well. He is the ex-webmaster of the University of New Mexico's student chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals, the AITP.
